China Swipes At McCain Over Dalai Lama Meeting

From AFP:

China warned US presidential candidate John McCain on Monday to stop “supporting and conniving with” the Dalai Lama, saying that meeting the Tibetan spiritual leader hurt Sino-US relations.

The call came after the Republican hopeful met the Dalai Lama on Friday during the latter’s visit to the United States, praising him as a “transcendent international role model and hero”.

“China is seriously concerned about the report,” foreign ministry spokesman Liu Jianchao said according to a statement on the ministry’s website, adding that the Tibet issue was China’s domestic affair.
